Subject [PATCH] Logging startup errors, for specific cases.
Date Wed, 17 Apr 2002 03:24:50 GMT
Here's a simple patch that allows windows users who wish to -avoid-
the Event Log to use a '-E file' argument to start Apache, and begin
logging errors to the named file immediately.

It won't catch parsing errors on the command line [duh - how did they
bork that] or in the config args registered for the service.

This patch could be simpler, I could treat it as a Win32-only case.  But
I'm betting that some other platforms (Netware, OS/2, daemon-tool
invocations) might also benefit from the -E argument.

Feedback?  If it leaves a bad taste in enough folks mouths, I'll make this
a Win32-only argument.  If no one complains, I'll commit as-is (for all
platforms) sometime tomorrow.
